We’re always excited to upgrade the beta version. First of all, it’s because our most dedicated followers use it. Second, we use the beta channel for daily tasks.

Bookmark tree view

We’re introducing an improved bookmark tree view in this release, so you can create and maintain the structure you would like more easily. You can view it either from the drop-down menu or from the side panel in the bookmark manager.

Bookmark tree view

Sync passwords

Passwords synchronisation now comes to beta. If you already use the sync service, you should notice a message in the sync dialog. You can configure what stuff you want to sync on your account with the new advanced synchronisation settings panel.

master_password

In case of any issues with playing videos, please make sure you have the latest available Flash installed.

You gave us feedback that there were duplicates in the bookmarks, whenever you added a website to Speed Dial. We listened: now, only one bookmark will be added, but you’ll need to select the proper folder from the menu to do so.

There are even more improvements in this version, added here and there. So, you are welcome to play with it and discover on your own.

  • L33t4opera

    Hi Zhenis, thanks for the article, and congrats on the promotion of the Opera 32 to the beta channel! 😉

  • Dark Magician

    Are you joking, your own screenshot shows Win 10 bug.

    • Vux777

      scrollbars? ツ

      • Dark Magician

        Yep.

      • Mikolaj Boc

        Sorry we’re fixing that. It’s one of those issues that hit you in the face with being seemingly easy to fix, but they’re – in fact – not.

    • rpsgc

      Hardware acceleration is not working properly either. Clicking on any extension in the toolbar doesn’t display its menu.

      (Disabling HW acceleration fixes the problem)

  • Ralf Brinkmann

    Hi Zhenis! Thanks for the new beta.
    Problem:
    Opera Beta is standard browser, as far as I can see in the settings.
    I click on a link in my usenet client, which is posted there.
    I receive an Opera message “Opera unresponsive. Restart now?”

    In fact Opera is not unresponsive. It’s still working and when I copy the link I can open it the normal way in Opera.
    Everything under Window 10 Pro.

  • Alex Wazovskiy

    You still can not fix the unthemed scrollbar in Windows 10? That’s funny.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Fixes come in developer branch first. Also, the fix may not be that simple.

  • I will ask this again because I never really received any type of answer. Are we ever getting an option to add bookmarks to the end of the list instead of the front?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Opera usually doesn’t talk about upcoming features and/or changes in existing ones.

  • Vux777

    some flags are now enabled by default:
    -Restore contents of contenteditable elements
    -Update notifications
    -History as bundled extension

    and some new flags:
    -Other speed dials cleaner
    -Downloads as bundled extension
    -Video themes

    • Pavel Aleksandrov

      ‘Other speed dials cleaner’
      Oh God, this sounds as if they didn’t actually fix the speed dial duplication glitch but just made functionality to counteract it -.- I hope I’m wrong

    • escruting

      So, with every part of the browser becoming bundled, we are getting more and more into the world of not seamless transition between browser components, and combined with the web oriented internal pages this is getting more and more clunky. When is the white blink when reloading speed dial or internal pages gonna be fixed? the same for the transitions of the bottom nav bar…

      • mikemanger

        Good point. Google has proposed a “Web Navigation Transitions” spec to allow transitions between page loads.. this should give the browser a more native ‘app-like’ feel on pages that implement it.

    • Nekomajin43

      Thanks for the proper announcement. 😉

      • L33t4opera

        You’re welcome, although this is only my humble summary for some of the changes in this build 😉

        • Nekomajin43

          But it’s more than the blog post.
          I hate that I have to spen a lot of time to find what is left out from the announcements every time. This is a developer blog, not for the everyday users. I like to get a full list like yours, not just some fancy highlights.

    • Mon

      Nothing about a flag to restore the old and better Speed Dial?

      • David_Gould

        Yes, I dislike the new speed dial. The one that had a picture of the webpage was so much more intuitive to use.

  • Is there a way to disable auto play of videos on Youtube when using HTML5 player?

    • SuperTommy

      Not without an extension I think.

    • L33t4opera

      Hi Chas4, for that purpose, you can use the “Magic Actions for YouTube“, or if you want a solution, which also works on many other websites, you can install the “Disable HTML5 Autoplay” extension 😉

      • Thanks (those auto plays do get annoying)

    • icetom

      I use the extension, YouTube Center Developer Build, its very powerful. Or the ones which already have been mentioned

  • An old Opera bug on opera://about/ for users of OS X 10.8 and up, is that the name is wrong

    For example “Mac OS X 10.10.4 64-bit” is a fake name, Apple dropped Mac from the OS X name a few versions ago http://www.macrumors.com/2012/02/16/apple-officially-drops-mac-name-from-os-x-mountain-lion/

  • Nekomajin43

    This is what I call an update. Thanks!

    Two things:

    – Is it possible to implement an option to sort bookmarks by date too?

    – Can you specify what settings are being synced?

  • Dima S

    Transparency on Mac didn’t move to beta?

    • proxxy

      Available by flag (#vibrancy-in-window-frame).

    • SuperTommy

      Then it’s not ready yet, and still being worked on.

  • _artem_

    i heard opera wants to sell itself? so switching to chromium ruined the whole company?

    • Dima S

      It did not, the share price almost doubled since then. It’s seems like Russian crisis had the biggest effect, but look at financials is need to confirm.

    • Rafael Luik

      Read the reports correctly, the part of the company that didn’t reach the expected profit was Opera Mediaworks.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      They are reviewing strategies but there is nothing solid about Opera being sold.

  • Alexander

    Pleeeease make ability to reload speed dial preview images via F5 on speed dial page or individually (via pressing edit) as it was before. It helps a lot when you want to see what changed in your favorite sites at a glance.

  • proxxy

    In Yosemite, window open unmaximized (every time when i start opera, i have to maximize, otherwise it remains on quarter of the top-left screen).

  • mihe

    Has anyone else distorted sound on youtube with html5? If I force it to use flash, the sound is normal.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Which OS? Seems ok here with Windows 10.

      • mihe

        Also on Windows 10. It happens only in Opera. With IE11 no problems…

  • Ben

    Anyone else’s touchscreen not working in the Opera browser in Windows 10 now? Using my Surface Pro 3. I can only use the touchpad.

    • SuperTommy

      Known issue. You can try to enable #touch-events (opera://flags/#touch-events) in flags.

      • Ben

        Perfect. Thanks!

  • Cryio

    Improvements to Opera’s behavior in Windows 10 ?

    • SuperTommy

      What’s your issues?

      • Cryio

        Opera’s redraw stops to a half when you drag a tab from within the browser to create a new window and try snapping it to half the screen. You need to move the tab a bit for Opera’s redraw ability to kick back in.

        That … and Opera’s Windows 95 bars in Windows 10.

        Browser update notifications in the Windows 10’s Action Center would be nice.

        Actual GPU acceleration in HTML5 videos on Youtube would also be nice. It seems only IE11 is the only browser with working GPU acceleration in Windows 10.

        • Marko Koivuniemi

          I think I have same kind of redraw issues with Windows 8.1 64-bit also. Those have been there a while – I suspect Blink. (Or my laptops old GPU (NVS3100M) or it’s driver.

        • Mikolaj Boc

          Hi Cryio, we are working on the ‘Windows 95 bars’ issue as we speak. Unfortunately it’s not as simple to fix as one could think, so it may take some time to fix this.

          About the first issue, either I don’t undertand correctly or I cannot reproduce using your steps. If you would be so kind to provide a short video, we’d be very grateful.

          About the browser update notifications, we’d like the updates to remain silent.

          And the GPU acceleration – please try to enable #enable-platform-accelerated-video-decoding in opera://flags, mind the feature may not be ready yet, though.

  • Vux777

    bug from developer channel now expanded to beta
    chrome.tabs.executeScript doesn’t work in iFrames
    reported as DNA-42484

    devs pls look at it

  • Joe438

    Does this mean that if I use f11 I will see the address bar when using “opera:flags#show-domain-when-entering-fullscreen” ?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Nope.

      • Joe438

        What does it mean/do then?

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Not sure. Maybe this?

          • Joe438

            Maybe, but I can’t recreate what you showed.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            The bar will appear only if you don’t have the site added as an exception in settings > websites > full screen.

          • Joe438

            I still don’t get your results. My full screen exceptions is blank. I’ll play around with it and see what I can learn.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Also note that it’s not related to F11. It appears when you go full screen by clicking on a button in a page or when the page goes full screen automatically.

            You can try with a Youtube video for example.

          • Joe438

            I know, but I already tried that as well 😉

          • Leonardo Gomes

            And what does it shows for you?

          • Joe438

            Just a full screen as if I had hit F11.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            And no message, like the one in the bar in my picture?

          • Joe438

            Sorry for the late reply. No, there is no message like the one in the bar in your picture. This is not an important issue for me.

  • Why should I use Opera, I have Chrome and it does everything already?

    • SuperTommy

      If it does, why are you asking?

      • Because we had lots of memories with Opera.

        • Joe438

          Then please use an older version of Opera or use Chrome.

          • Herr Pietrus

            I’m still using Opera 28 😛

    • 5gdev

      Just wondering, does Chrome support built-in mouse gestures?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      I think that someone uses something because s/he likes it and also because his/her needs are satisfied by the product.

  • Joe438

    I notice that when using the heart menu to add bookmarks there is no overlay showing the number of possible thumbnail images to cycle through. I’m not sure if this is by design.

    Also, when using the heart menu to change the thumbnail image the screen shot of the website is cached and may be several months old. Deleting the bookmark from speed dial and bookmarks and then re-adding the bookmark seems to reset the cache.

    • Joe438

      I discovered a better way to reset the cache for heart menu thumbs. If you cycle to a different thumb then close and open the heart menu you can cycle to the screen shot and the thumb will be current as opposed to the cached screen shot.

      This method saves several steps.

      • Rafael Luik

        Still too many unintuitive steps.

        • Joe438

          Maybe, but it is nice to have a workaround solution.

          I’m not sure if fixing this is necessarily better. What if the user prefers to keep the old snapshot? I’m not sure what the best way is to fix this.

  • Kev87

    Thanks for the update and the improvements Zhenis! I now hope that Opera 33 is going to improve on tab stacking and more gestures.

  • Gustav Ekner

    Since many version, when you enter a website, Opera sometimes hangs(without loading full website) and occupy a big chunk of RAM. I have to close it manually. There is no specific site. Don’t know if crush reporter reports it or not. OS is Win 8.1 x64 update 3

  • Joe438

    Just curious. Is the “share” and “shared by me” being phased out?

    • SuperTommy

      Yes. DNA-40910 in the changelog.

      never mind.

  • Zin

    Good, now i hope ASA software will have the intention to add those you know, to make opera opera again http://vivaldi.net/surveys/index.php/survey/index/sid/561377/newtest/Y/lang/en

    PS: IRC must come FIRST. 😉

    • Leonardo Gomes

      IRC will not come back.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Also, i don’t think they have any intention in turning Opera Blink in what Opera Presto was because it would mean that they were making the same mistakes again.

      • BK

        Exactly – we don’t intend to make Presto again.

      • ayespy

        Rehabbing most of the Presto capabilities on top of Blink would not, in my opinion, be a mistake. However, returning to Presto certainly would be. A wide range of customization options plus inbuilt internet suite capabilities are not IMHO “mistakes,” but rather a corporate “cost vs benefit” analysis. Had the analysis gone another direction, competitors who seek to replicate the Old Opera experience would never have been born. Essentially every prior Opera user would have clung to the lifeboat offered with the new engine.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          I may be wrong but i guess that the lots of options and features in Opera Presto were one of the main factors that led its code to a stage of being very hard to mantain and forced them to change.

          Also, i think that some of the Presto’s features were very useful and meaningful in the past but nowadays they may not be that significant for most users and, because of this, may not worth the efforts to bring them back.

          I think most people likes and want simplicity rather than lots of options and features that may lead them into trouble.

          • ayespy

            It’s true that the majority of people can’t be bothered with options and merely want to be able to click and stare at a page, or click somewhere else and add something to their facebook feed. That does not make a browser built for people who want more than this, a “mistake.” Presto itself was what spelled the end for old Opera 12 and prior – not the number of options the browser supported. Compatibility was key – and Presto could not provide it.

            I am an example (and there are several million of us) of a user for whom absence of certain features made us unable to become completely comfortable in Opera Blink or any other mainstream browser. Were it not the case, a browser like Vivaldi would attract no interest, and have no reason to exist. “Most” users does not define what is or is not a mistake unless numbers are the entire raison d’être of your browser. If the browser exists to serve the unserved, features are key.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Of course there are – and probably there will always be – the ones who prefer softwares with lots of options and features but maybe they are nowadays a specific niche for whom more specific products is being/will be created.

            When Opera started 20 years ago, the internet was for a few ones because the requirements to access it were for a few ones. Now the internet can be access through a TV, a mobile phone, etc.

            The internet has changed, the ones accessing it have changed as well as their needs regarding browsing.

            Btw, when i said mistake i was referring to the fact that even i’m liking them, (some) features and options seemed to be added to Opera Presto just for the sake of adding it before others do the same and not exactly thinking about adding something useful for most of browser’s users.

  • Gaintpeach

    Disabling #share-button-visibility doesn’t work, it still appears.

  • Gaintpeach

    How to disable synchronization button on the toolbar? I cant find the flag to disable it like in the previous beta.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      You can’t.

      • Gaintpeach

        Why not? I don’t use synchronization.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          So just ignore the button. There’s no way to remove it.

          • Gaintpeach

            I disable it because I use the extension “Home Button At Top Right”, since Opera doesn’t have a home button. I would like my home button after the sync button if i cant disable it anymore.

          • Kornelia Mielczarczyk

            Home button is on the left of address bar – ‘Start page’. Synchronisation is no longer behind the flag, so you cannot remove the button. I hope you’ll find it useful one day, when you decide to synchronise stuff on different devices.

          • Nekomajin43

            What would be useful is the ability to customize the toolbar. Just take a look on Firefox, and you will know, what we mean.

          • BK

            We are looking into getting this sync button removed from top UI. Nothing we work on yet now though.

          • Nekomajin43

            Personally, I like the sync button. It is a good feedback. But I find the Start page button unnecessary. Others are different.
            I just don’t understand why we can’t remove and rearrange the buttons. I know, there are the average users who would mess up the toolbar, but you have power user settings, don’t you? Put a switch there, and it’s fool-proof.

          • Herr Pietrus

            I like the home button, and the sync button too (but I don’ t use sync and I’m testing the FF and Chrome now to leave the Opera…)

          • Gaintpeach

            Thank you for considering it in the future. It will would better for my muscle memory if it was not there.

          • Gaintpeach

            That’s not the home button I want, can I set it to Google or
            Bing? It only takes me to speed dial. I only use a desktop computer! I have no
            reason to use synchronization. An option to disable it would be nice. Please
            bring more customization options to Opera. Thanks!

          • blue_screen

            I think there is a bug: The button is named “Start page”, but it does’t open the start page set in Opera setting, instead it opens only speed dial.

          • Kornelia Mielczarczyk

            In setting you’re defining what we should open on startup: ‘Start page’ (which is speed dial page) or other specified page/set of pages.

          • blue_screen

            “Start page” for speed dial is a strange wording. Every other browser calls a specified page that opens on start-up the “Start page”. I really think you should change the wording in the settings and give the exiting button the function users expect by it’s name.

  • Dark Magician

    Sync should be completely encrypted client side, like Firefox…

    • Joe438

      “Your passwords will be encrypted with your account password, and will only ever be decrypted on your own devices, never on Opera’s servers.” see blog post 32.0.1899.0 for more info.

      • Dark Magician

        As I understand from they formulation on the matter, that only is for synced passwords, not history, bookmarks etc.

        • Joe438

          Everything synced is encrypted. read

          for more.

          https://blogs.opera.com/desktop/2014/10/faq-opera-syncing/

          • Dark Magician

            And what they mean by this ”However, non-login data is not stored encrypted on the servers.”?

          • Joe438

            Honestly, I’m not sure. As far as I can tell it is IP addresses and crash reports, which you can opt out of. Still, something to look into.

    • Janghou

      Agreed.

      Worse the text in the dialog is ambiguous.

      It says: for added security it will encrypt your data. So you think all your data is encrypted while Opera docs explain that your data (except passwords) isn’t encrypted on storage, only for transit, (the latter IMHO simply means https).

      Can someone from Opera explain?

      IMHO we need services that honour privacy, security is not enough.

      Why?

      Private services: only you can read your data, nobody else, even we can’ t.

      Secure services: no one can read your data except you and us, and we want a royalty-free, sublicensable, transferable, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, worldwide license to use, reproduce, modify, publish, list information regarding, edit, translate, distribute, syndicate, publicly perform, publicly display, and make derivative works of all such User Content and your name, voice, and/or likeness as contained in your User Content, in whole or in part, and in any form, media or technology, whether now known or hereafter developed, for use in connection with the Service (and its successors’ and affiliates’) business, including without limitation for promoting and redistributing part or all of the Service (and derivative works thereof) in any media formats and through any media channels.

      So secure is a subset of private.

      Big question: is Opera’ s sync private or secure?

  • Kamen Minkov

    Y U NO 64 bit for Windows?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      When there be a 64 bits version for Windows, it will be released in developer stream first.

  • Joe438

    Probably a bug, but if you rename a speed dial entry the thumbnail image disappears.

  • Joe438

    Minor thing, but it feels like in the bookmarks area the cursor should hover over the divider between the sidebar and the displayed bookmarks on the right before adjustable divider can be adjusted as opposed to the first 5 pixels to the right of the divider.

    It seems that default settings of #bookmark-thumbnails-direct-upload flag doesn’t work.

    • tdudziec

      How is that not working for you ? Could you provide URL that was not working for you and basic steps you were doing ?

      • tux

        I can’t see any bookmark thumbnail if this feature is enabled. But if it is disabled, bookmarks working normally.

      • tux

        I have started opera-beta via cli and it printing following error message to cli when I trying add new bookmark via heart icon:

  • Rafael Luik

    Right so I can’t disable browser://flags#tab-menu-with-recent-tabs to get the full list of closed tabs anymore because you “know best”. I’m another step farther from Opera, sadly…

  • where is the flag: #flash-update-warning?

    • Kornelia Mielczarczyk

      The flag is removed ones the feature is enabled by default in few releases.

  • alvin

    there’s a problem of opera: when entering autoscroll mode, the mouse icon doesn’t change and some time mouse gesture stop working

    • SuperTommy

      You mean the autoscroll icon doesn’t work in this latest beta? It does here. It’s just been fixed.

  • qwert

    I hope you continue to work on:

    Lastest Flash had high load CPU usage on youtube ,webgames …

    I used modified Flash and was error ” couldn’t load plug-in”
    (it worked fine on Opera 31 stable)
    Mod can fix this?

    • SuperTommy

      Use PPAPI Flash.

    Opera have this error?

    The PDF reader in Mozilla Firefox before 39.0.3, Firefox ESR 38.x before 38.1.1, and Firefox OS before 2.2 allows remote attackers to bypass the Same Origin Policy, and read arbitrary files or gain privileges, via vectors involving crafted JavaScript code and a native setter, as exploited in the wild in August 2015.
    https://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/detail?vulnId=CVE-2015-4495

    • Andrew Andreyuk

      No. Opera doesn’t use firefox PDF reader

  • Momfer1

    Still the same problems with DPI on Windows 10.

  • dmouflard

    Is it planned to use html5 player for youtube and some websites as on Chrome ?

    • SuperTommy

      HTML5 is default on YouTube? YouTube.

      • dmouflard

        i don’t really know but when I right click on a youtube vidéo (On Chrome 44 without specific extensions, OSX Yosemite) there is “About HTML5 Player”. Before there was “About Flash Player”. But I just install Opera to check and there is the same thing

        • SuperTommy

          Yes, HTML5 will be default as YouTube is moving away from Flash.

          • dmouflard

            Yeah it’s what I thought. But how is it already default on my computer ?

          • SuperTommy

            YouTube is forcing it to be, you can’t choose. Opera handles HTML5 without any need for installs like e.g. Flash, so there’s not anything you need on your computer besides Opera.

      • HTML5 has been the default on youtube for quite a while now. Opera is the only browser that defaults to flash instead of HTML5 to my knowledge.

        • SuperTommy

          I know, I didn’t mean it as a question, but as a statement that it is. But I see it can be understood both ways.

          Edit: Though it doesn’t default to Flash here, always forced HTML5. When I go to youtube.com/html5 I get “The HTML5 player is currently used when possible.”

          • It always defaults to Flash in opera so long that Flash is installed. I have experienced this in 4 different instances after a clean install. Every time I had to manually go to youtube.com/html5 and opt into HTML5 player. After doing that HTML5 will always load over Flash.

          • SuperTommy

            I have Flash installed and it’s never defaulted over HTML5 after MSE & H.264 got implemented. Clean install or not. But I don’t know if it’s OS dependent or something, I’m using Win 8.1 and 10.

          • It’s not. You are probably wrong on this. On a clean install, it will default to flash. This has been the case For win 7, win 8.1 and win 10. This happened on multiple different machines in the past month or so after doing a fresh Opera install. This is easily fixed, however, by simply opting into HTML5 player on youtube.

          • SuperTommy

            Then I can’t help you. I know what I’ve experienced more than you, I use Opera on three computers, both Beta and Developer. Just because it doesn’t happen on your end, doesn’t mean it does with others. Stop being so difficult, ends up no one wants to have a discussion with you. I never said you were wrong in your assumptions, I listed up my experience with it. And that is HTML5 has always been default after MSE & H.264. End of.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Starting with Opera 31 it defaults to html5 player, at least here.

  • Mat M

    Make Bookmarks bar location-dependent in Sync, like Speed Dial ?
    IMO, it makes sense. What’s your opinion ?

  • escruting

    The new bookmark behaviour makes the “press the heart and forget about it” not true anymore. Cant you atleast make a toggle to chooso if we want or not to remember the last used folder? This would make it a better experience to use it.

    The heart button popup is already not very intuitive right now with, please dont make it worse.

    Also, please change the bottom nav bar position already.

    Thanks.

    • SuperTommy

      Good suggestion, I often forget changing folder because I expect it to go straight to Unsorted.

  • Kamen Minkov

    If there’s way to keep a separate Speed Dial on each instance of Opera, why isn’t there a way to keep separate settings for number of columns as well? I set up Synchronisation at work today on a Beta installation and got changed number of columns when I got home…

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Try disabling settings sync.

  • sgrandin

    PGA.com live video doesn’t load, just page with black screen (O32b or O12.17). Latest flash player installed.
    http://www.pga.com/pgachampionship/live/player.html

  • sgrandin

    Why only tiles on Speed Dial? On previous betas, at least prior to a new install earlier this week (Win 8.1 reinstall), sync from O12 brought over thumbnails that show the website. Much easier to recognize and act on. Is there a setting?

    • SuperTommy

      Go to the webpage you have on your SD and click the heart icon. There you can browse between different images.

      • Ivanov Vano

        Stupid advice. No reload or refresh of page. It was the opportunity to just refresh icon and see the preliminary contents of main page of web-site. Firefox has 7 operation for icons. Opera has 2 – change and delete.

        • ayespy

          Sounds like you need to stay with Firefox. You’re never going to like it here.

        • SuperTommy

          It’s not stupid if it’s the only way to do it. I’m not the developer, so I can’t change the way it works.

      • sgrandin

        Even as a workaround, which shouldn’t be necessary, how do you save the site’s image with the heart icon drop down?

        Zhenis, What is this sort of programming is this? It should turn your stomach.

  • blah blah

    The bookmarks bar is totally broken for me (OSX 10.7.5). I lost all previous links in it, although they are still in the ‘bookmarks bar’ folder in the bookmarks drop down menu. I also can’t add anything new by dragging links to the bar from anywhere else, which is a strange decision, not to mention an inconvenient one: I need to drag and drop a link to a javascript applet that I use for work. I’m off to update chromium, I guess.

  • _artem_

    please fix the stupid lastpass crash in dev channel

  • SQL

    Eh, I just noticed that I lost all of my bookmark folders and their contents as a result of updating to O32. “My Folders” is grayed out and there are no folders under that.

    EDIT: Okay, they’re all still inside the Bookmarks-file, but i can’t get them to display in Opera at all.. Hmm.

    EDIT2: Ok, turns out I had the “Bookmarks Tree View” flag set to disabled.. You should really remove the flag if changing it causes the bookmarks to no longer display…

    • Nekomajin43

      It’s beta. They won’t remove flag in the beta stream…

      • SQL

        Just saying that the flag is 100% useless right now, remove it in the developer stream then. Why have a flag that when changed causes things not to work?

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Well, as the flag’s page warns, it can happen that a flag will stop working.

        • Nekomajin43

          Those flags are not for you to play with. Those are for the developers to turn off/on certain features for testing. The page is publicly available so you can try new features in developer state, but they are not guaranteed to work.

          • SQL

            I don’t really think you got my point. Assuming the Tree-view is finished in it’s current state, the flag is just plain useless. I don’t see a single scenario where the developers would like to render the bookmarks useless.

          • Nekomajin43

            The BM tree is not finished. It is in beta testing phase.

  • Ivanov Vano

    No any changes in speed dial

  • Sorry but Opera 31 still have page compatibility issues on some certain websites page since last September. I don’t know how long will you guys take to fixed this simple yet annoying problem. I am extremely disappointed in your team seriously….

    • Leonardo Gomes

      And those compatibility issues would be,,,,?

  • Focus on fixing the issues first rather than adding new features if you can’t keep up with the schedule…

    • Joe438

      There’s a schedule? I always thought the releases came when they were ready. A developer said before that they prefer to do both at the same time 🙂

      • Nah Opera usually take around 8 weeks or longer to released a new version yet their browser still have major problem on release…

        • Rafael Luik

          Don’t say that or we will never have new features. 😡

    • SuperTommy

      What issues? Saw your post below. If those are the only issues, you should list up the websites that have those compatibility issues.

      • It usually a news sites or blogging political sites which I will not disclosed as it a sensitive sites…

        • DataZByteS

          They cant fix something they don’t know. You have to give them an example.

          I would also check sites in chrome as it could be chromium issue.

          • Nope I have tried other browser and it works well…

          • bwat47

            what other browser did you try? chrome? if it works in chrome then that indicates it’s probably browser sniffing on the website’s end causing the issue, which you could get around by masking opera’s user agent as chrome (various user agent extensions that can do that)

  • Bob Tarling

    My install of Opera 32 seems to be very resource hungry, and slow, with many pages refusing to load…

  • escruting

    On Win10 Opera is freezing for me 2 or 3 times per hour. I use Opera not maximized, when i maximize and unmaximize, it unfreezes.

    Anyone having this issue? This didnt happen on Win7.

    • Ralf Brinkmann

      What kind of machine and what graphics card? Do you have a notebook? Radeon graphics card? I know about some more people who had problems after the upgrade to Windows 10. Especially with the AMD Catalyst Software Suite. Maybe you should try to find another driver software version.

      • escruting

        Win10 Pro x64. Desktop computer. Graphics card Radeon HD 6850. AMD Driver 15.7.1 (the latest for Win10). Maybe i will try to rollback to the driver i had before, but it was the one i had on win7…

        • Ralf Brinkmann

          Interesting, that’s exact the same problem another user had. He had no problems with 15.7.0, but with 15.7.1 or what Windows itself updatet during the installation. So if you have the possibility try out the older version.

          • escruting

            I will try to do so, thanks for your help.

            I will write tomorrow with the result.

    • Cryio

      It’s not a known issue. I clean installed Opera 31 on a clean install of Windows 10. No issue. It must be something on your end, sorry. Or who knows, maybe you upgrade from W7 to W10 and Opera broke something along the way.

  • Merkulov Sergey

    Why have you removed the option opera://flags/#tab-menu-with-recent-tabs? Now the list of closed tabs is limited to 10 sites. For the first time after switching on Chromium, I express the negative to such a decision. All of you have decided for the user. Sadness.

    • Corzo

      And the same goes for Stash, Shared bookmarks and others left behind, the matter is if already there and is useful for some users, why just don’t keep as an option.

      • L33t4opera

        Hi, if you want, then you can try the “V7 Stash” extension.

        • Corzo

          Thanks for the recommendation, already tested , but is not the same functionally, the major reason to me is the fact that is not possible to remember the same spot in the page when you save it and reopen, the size of the preview and the quality itself. Which to me is very useful.

  • Dima S

    Does anybody know what might be the reason for Opera Stable launching automatically after 2-5 minutes of working with Beta or Developer? Using OS X 10.10.5.

          • Sierra

            The problem was disabled “Use hardware acceleration when available”. It works now.

    • Ralf Brinkmann

      Looks and works great here. Maybe something is blocking?

    • Marko Koivuniemi

      Works fine here too Win8.1 Pro 64-bit. Could be related to some extension.

  • jedy123

    I have to say I really don’t like the new interface for OSX (I’m using 10.9 Mavericks). The buttons look really ugly and the blue highlight around the address bar is quite distracting. Why the change?

    • L33t4opera

      Hi, you can disable the opera:flags#mac-toolbar-redesign, restart the Opera, and check, if it looks better for you.

    • bwat47

      the addressbar highlight is the native highlight used in all search boxes in osx yosemite… open the finder in yosemite and click the search box, same thing. They’ve just using the native style (which makes sense)

      • jedy123

        Understandable but for pre Yosemite OSX users the interface looks ugly.

  • Deonte

    Bandcamp, Soundcloud, nor vines work for me still. I’m using the latest updated PPAPPI plug in and tried every fix possible but still doesn’t work.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Regarding Soundcloud, do you have Turbo enabled by chance? Or maybe “click to play”?

      • Deonte

        I have neither enabled. I tried everything man lol, clean installs, enabling different settings but nothing works. Every other browser can play content from these websites, even Vivaldi, a “preview browser” so I’m at the point of giving up.

        I can hear a sound but the image is black
        http://prntscr.com/851r6o

        • SuperTommy

          Perhaps (obviously) it’s isolated to Win7. I see two above with the same issue on Win7.

          • Vux777

            yea, only on win7
            ..and not all, some users experiencing it, some dont…
            it’s about media player and 7 N /7 KN windows (I think)

            EU versions (I disabled media player in my win)

          • Arjan van Leeuwen

            Opera uses the Media Player libraries to play back H264 videos. So if you manually remove Windows Media Player, you no longer have the libraries that Opera needs to play back videos. There’s no way it will ever work this way 🙂

          • Vux777

            true…even if I returned media player from “add or remove windows features”, still no luck

          • blue_screen

            With Opera Stable and Windows 7 pro x86 with mediaplayer this video stays black.

          • Joe438

            I’m not fully understanding. Does this mean there is currently no workaround for this issue?

          • blue_screen

            I use no special Version of Windows 7 (like N/KN) and I have the same issue as Vux777. So Opera seems not to be able to play these videos at least on all Windows 7 systems (I don’t if works on linux).

          • Lacedaemon

            Doesn’t play with Vista x32 as well, dev version 32.0.1933.0

        • L33t4opera

          Hi Vux777, you can enable the opera:flags#disable-accelerated-video-decode, and see if this helps.

          • Vux777

            nope
            still the same
            ….but tnx

          • L33t4opera

            Try to install the “Media Feature Pack” for Windows 7 N/KN, and see if this helps 😉

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Works here on Windows 10.

    • Joe438

      It does not work for me in Opera Stable, Developer, or Beta here on Windows 7 64bit. In Firefox it is fine.

    • Carson Coyote

      Same thing happens for me on Windows 7 x64, but it’s only with a few videos. I think it has to do with the codec the video is encoded with.

    • Ralf Brinkmann

      No problem here. W10x64 Pro.

    • Kai Ockendorf

      No problem here too! W10x64

    • Do you have the Chrome extension (it is also in the Opera extensions catalog) “Disable HTML5 Autoplay” in Opera? I noticed it breaks video players on Instagram and now I see that it breaks them on Twitter (also Disable HTML5 Autoplay does not work on embed Youtube HTML5 videos)

      • Vux777

        no
        I did had it before for testing, but not anymore
        also tested with fresh standalone (USB) developer version

    Can someone tell me why Opera for Mac do not retain the last session (tabs) when you close the browser using the close Button ? I have to close the browser with command+Q every time for retain my tabs.

  • Joe438

    “Second, we use the beta channel for daily tasks.”

    I’m interested in knowing what is meant by “daily tasks”.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Maybe it means that they use Opera beta on a daily basis, as their working browser?

      • Arjan van Leeuwen

        I’m pretty sure that’s what Zhenis meant 🙂

        • Vux777

          lots of crashes with this build
          one of them is if I leave Opera active and put windows (7×64) to sleep

        • Joe438

          Thank you. I was thinking it meant they use blog posts about the beta releases and comments for getting the beta version ready for a stable release on a daily basis.

  • mrfx

    Why JAVA is not supported anymore?

    • Ralf Brinkmann

      On my W10x64Pro-Computer Java is still supported, but the security settings are stronger than before. But this has nothing to do with Opera. I can still open the SWR3-Webcam (http://www.swr3.de/studiocam-beta, then click on the lower right button “Webcam steuern”), if I have the correct exception entries in the Java settings. Have you set “Activate Java content in the browser” in the Java settings?

      • mrfx

        There’s “This site uses a plug-in (JavafTM)} that will soon be unsupported.” message when I open my bank’s stock brokers app url, but Java not works already. There is no Java plugin at opera://plugins/. W10x64. Opera 32.0.1948.4. Java 8u51.
        Java works on other browsers.
        EDIT: After latest update Java doesn’t work on Chrome too. I see it is deprecated technology now and my bank should replace its app with something more modern like Javascript/AngularJS etc.

        • Ralf Brinkmann

          As a workaround you can disable opera://flags/#disable-npapi.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          It’s because java uses a npapi plugin and support for this kind of plugin is being dropped by Chromium.
          Sooner or later all Chromium based browsers will no longer be able to handle npapi plugins.

          Java will have to release an ppapi plugin or the pages that use Java will have to change.

  • Sidney Moraes

    Wide Vine is not visible in Opera beta and developer under opera:plugins.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      I can see it in developer but not in Beta or Stable.

      • Sidney Moraes

        I already did a clean install and it does not change it.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          You need to visit a site that uses it for the plugin to be downloaded.

          • Sidney Moraes

            And the site would be?

          • Leonardo Gomes

            I only know Netflix.

            I notice in my Windown 7 PC that Wide Vine is in opera:plugins on Opera Stable!

  • Ghirahim

    • Olli

      One month and no new developer build. Quite impressive.

      • Ghirahim

        Maybe in 2016. Fingers crossed.

        • Joe438

          Developer? I can’t wait for Beta to go Stable. This is going to be an awesome and huge update/upgrade to Opera 🙂

  • Joe438

    If a website is located in the bookmarks, possibly in multiple locations, and in the speed dial and the heart menu is opened what will get deleted if you use the trash button?

    • Joe438

      kk, in regards to multiple instances of a bookmark that are stored in the speed dial and/ or different locations in the bookmarks section the bookmark or speed dial that will be deleted is listed in the drop down list just under the image in the heart menu. I was not able to see a way to use the heart menu to choose which of the duplicate speed dial or bookmark entries you want to delete.

      This is not too important, because if you have several duplicate bookmarks that you want to keep and want to delete just one it will be easier to do so via the bookmarks section itself via searching the bookmarks.

  • Still can’t sync speed dial

    • ayespy

      That’s right. There is no speed dial sync any more. There is only “other speed dials” which you may copy to the local speed dial if you wish.

  • PaulW

    I just upgraded my PC from Win XP to win 7 (the old one died) . I logged into sync OK and it synced the tool bar, passwords and book marks fine but not the Speed Dials. They are listed in the book marks under the name of the old PC and I can’t see any way of copying them into the new Speed Dial area. In the days of opera 12 I would just have copied the speedial.ini file but what is the file called in this version of Opera? I guess i could copy the entire profile folder from the old PC to the new one but this sort of defeats the use of sync..
    Thanx in advance..

    • Vux777

      can you just drag and drop it from “other speed dials” to your speed dial folder?
      there’s also right click copy…
      …or am I missing something?
      in those situations (when transferring bookmarks to new profile/installation) I use extension and do the same drag and drop from other folders into my main speed dial folder, but I guess it is the same procedure with bookmark manager

        Thanx. Select all from the old folder , copy and paste to the new one. All happy now 🙂

  • I’m just curious… is password sync coming to the Android version?

    Google is blocking Opera on https://hangouts.google.com/ (sends Opera users tohttps://hangouts.google.com/un…

    If you mask as Chrome 44 you can get to the main page

    Edit: It might get fixed Jordanna Chord 2:57 PM+1 posted on the Google+ post “Opera support issue is a bug. Filed and we’ll tackle quickly.”

    It does not work on Opera stable 31.0.1889.174

    Again no tab stacking – again not installing.
    Its sad to say this, but i hope, that after Opera sell, the new management will try different approach to opera user experience politics.

      Opera is being sold? LOL, someone is stupid enough to buy?! 😀 First time I’m seeing a Chrome skin being sold for so much money…

    How do you import extensions from dev to beta?

  • svelte

    Please, please don’t cut “Remember certificate error decisions”. That’s very useful option, which makes life easier.

    • Alex Parker

      “Please, please don’t cut” requests don’t work in Opera anymore, can’t you tell? Opera staff is a Scissorman, and you are its horror victim.

      Nobody even replies anymore. Opera is dead and rotting, and the few users that are left are the worms feasting on the grave.

    instant crash when opening new window if sidebar extension is opened

    • Vux777

      is this only me or….?
      I don’t see anyone else complaining about it
      on my side is 100% sure (fresh install)

    On http://www.deutsche-fahnedrehen-schwarzunten.de/ there is nothing I can click. No left click and no right click. In other browsers I can click and receive further informations. What’s the trick?

    • Vux777

      works fine here on win7x64

      • Ralf Brinkmann

        That’s strange, now it works here too. I think, that’s something I have already seen some times before. Sometimes the browser doesn’t respond on keystrokes or clicks. Then I have to minimize it and to open it again. After that mostly it responds.

    BRING BACK DISABLE SYNC AND BOOKMARKS TRASH FLAGS, dammit!
    Stop robbing power users of options!
    I don’t need Sync or Bookmarks Trash!

    Also BattleLog plugin from Battlefield 4 doesn’t work for me. WTH?

    Also internet shop http://www.partsdirect.ru completely stops responding after you log in. Doesn’t happen in other browsers.

    Also NPAPI removal notification flag IS NOT WORKING. Notification shows up whether I have it enabled or disabled.

    Opera UNsupports so many plugins, that the browser is nearly UNusable. Congratulations. You murdered it completely. 🙂

    Here’s a great idea: How about you leave NPAPI support choice to the USER? You know, that same user that you treat like a mindless pig?

    The Web STILL revolves around NPAPI plugins! You are RIPPING OUT the basic things without which your browser WILL NOT BE USABLE on many, MANY pages! Have you gone COMPLETELY INSANE?
    Or let me guess: you are Google’s slave now, and have no say whatsoever in the plugin drop issue? And can’t do anything about it? Well, continue working on “your” browser then.
    Nice skin to Chrome, btw.

      There’s a battlefield 4 patch coming september first that will remove the need to use Battlelog in a web browser and won’t require NPAPI (will be integrated with Origin instead). the NPAPI-less battlelog is already in BF4 CTE.

      NPAPI is dying, all the major browsers (not just Opera/chrome) have either begun deprecating it or plan to.

      It isn’t 1995 anymore, the web certainly does not revolve around NPAPI.

    New build – Opera beta 32.0.1948.12 😉
    The change log, and the announcement.

  • onelovestorie

    I can’t see my bookmarks on my bookmarks bar?! I can open the tab and see all my previous bookmarks bar pages, but on the browser nothing shows up. Even if I add new bookmarks to the bookmarks bar its empty. Anyone know a fix to this?
